About – Nick Buckley

Nick Buckley Square-6

I teach people how to practice mindfulness, and how to apply the changes that this brings about in them.

 

I draw on personal experience as well as the latest methods and evidence. I have meditated for over 40 years, and my academic specialism was consciousness and perception. But until 7 years ago my work, both in public administration and business, comprised policy making, strategy, projects and programmes, technology, the internet, product development and innovation.

 

7 years ago, I shifted my meditation practice to mindfulness. I also, coincidentally, reduced my employed hours to make more time for local community projects.

6 years ago, when I started helping other people to access and apply Mindfulness, I gave up direct employment altogether – initially in order to be an independent social media consultant. Helping professionals to use Social Media to discover new connections and allies, rather than just ‘push’ their image or their business offering.

And now? The mindfulness teaching has taken over. You might still persuade me to do social media work, or help you use online meeting tools [such as Zoom and WebEx] to deliver training and collaboration.

That’s me. I teach people how to practice and apply mindfulness. I’m also contributing to organisations which do the same thing. Organisations like Potential Project, and the Mindfulness in Schools Project, are rallying points for people with similar goals to me, and who I might never otherwise have met.

I genuinely believe these organisations can, through mindfulness, make a profound impact on the nature of workplaces. These changes go far beyond a palliative effect on the wellbeing or professional effectiveness of individuals. Because mindfulness can materially affect the culture and behaviours of whole organisations.

If all that sounds a bit grandiose – don’t blame me. All I did was keep saying ‘yes’ to things.

    Dear Nick, Louise at Witherdens Hall talked very eloquently about you, to me! Word of mouth is so powerful. I think she has filled you in on me. Leading writer, doing my very best to set the internet on fire with my writing, independently of big newspaper corps etc. I would love to talk to you.

    Send me an email and let’s chat.

    Warmest Regards,

    AJ

    Hey Nick,
    I don’t do much with my WP Blog. but I could change that with your feedback. Looks like your Empire Avenue shares are popping. Lemme know of any of your interests that I could support.
    I have recently gotten up to speed on Xeeme.com. I find it has more to offer than About.me for social media linkage and connection.
